A north Northumberland marmalade maker is showcasing her products at a special market for North-East produce this week.

Following the double-gold success of Lady Waterford Preserves, which are made by Lynne Allan at The Old Dairy in Ford, the Food Hall at Fenwick in Newcastle, has invited her to take part in an artisan market which celebrates fine food suppliers in the North East.

The market, called Made in the North East, started on Monday and takes place over two weeks until Sunday, May 1, during which Lady Waterford Preserves will feature for four days from tomorrow until Sunday between 10am and 5pm (11am and 4pm on Sunday).

The double gold was awarded for a savoury marmalade made with Seville oranges, beetroot and lemons at the The World’s Original Marmalade Awards which are held at Dalemain in Cumbria every year.

And since Lynne’s marmalade goes particularly well with cheese, plans are afoot to pair it with cheeses from well known Doddington Dairy which will also be present at the market.

Fenwick’s Food Hall has recently undergone a two-year, multimillion-pound redevelopment by CADA Design, a company which has previously worked for the likes of Harrods and the Queen’s grocer, Fortnum & Mason. The result is a veritable feast for foodies with a new wine room, four eateries and fine food suppliers from London and France, not forgetting an excellent range of local suppliers.
